4 Fridas, learning to Loosen Up. PPF
Challenges on Daily Paint Works
Happy Birthday Month, Frida Kahlo!
The challenge was to paint the same subject 4 times on one sheet of paper, divided up into 4 sections. Each time, loosen up, get sketchy. I learned a lot. Each time I used a bigger brush. Acrylic paint. The last two were done using a 1 inch angle brush. It is easier to get loose if you paint larger, I think.
I then cut up the individual pictures, and reworked most of them.
Also made one more.
When the eyes gave me trouble, I just closed them. LOL.
This was my favorite, and I did not have to fix her at all.
Hands are not my favorite part of the body to paint.
Her nose looks large, but the photo I worked from was sort of like that.
